'Jagan Kosam Janam Santhakam' campaign extended further

Hyderabad, Jan 11,
2013: YSR Congress party on Friday announced that the ‘Jagan Kosam Janam
Santhakam’ (People’s signature for Jagan) campaign has been extended further
till the party honourary president Smt. Y.S. Vijayamma gets an appointment with
the President of India Sri Pranab Mukherjee.

The massive signature
campaign is aimed at highlighting the unfair treatment and victimization being
meted out to the party president Sri Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy by the CBI.

Disclosing this to
reporters at the party head quarters here, party spokesman Ambati Rambabu said
the total number of signatures is expected to cross 2 Crores before the
campaign comes to a close. Exceeding the target of 1 Crore signatures, the party has so far collected 1.52 Crore signatures
from people in the state and elsewhere in the country and abroad as on 20th
day on Friday. The figure includes the signatures collected through online

“YSR Congress party honourary
president Smt. Y.S. Vijayamma has written to the Rashtrapathi Bhavan seeking an
appointment with Sri Pranab Mukherjee. Since it has not yet come through, the
party has decided to continue the campaign till we get the Presidential
appointment. On the other hand, there is also a tremendous response from the
people to the campaign,” he said.

signatures will be appended to an appeal that will be handed over to Sri Pranab
Mukherjee explaining the unfair treatment and victimization being meted out to
Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy by the CBI.

“Sri Jagan
Mohan Reddy has been jailed for more than seven months for the simple reason of
his coming out the Congress and launching his own political party. Working
under political pressure, the CBI has been going overboard to project him as
the culprit in a case foisted on him as part of the political vendetta. With biased
investigation, the probing officials have been resorting to misuse of their
official position. We appeal to you to intervene and stop this political
vendetta and victimization of Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy,” says the party’s appeal
to Pranab Mukherjee.
